Education USA Advisors from Eight Countries Visit OSU

Education USA Advisors visit OSU

Earlier this week (May 22), OSU had the honor of hosting, for a day, a delegation of Education USA advisors from Benin, Bolivia, Czech Republic, Malawi, Panama, Russia, Thailand, and Venezuela.

Whether connected to a U.S. embassy, a Fulbright Commission, or private university, each representative’s role is to counsel students in their respective countries about the vast array of educational exchange opportunities available in the U.S.

In addition to meeting President Ray, who spoke of the importance and value of internationalization, the visitors met with several head academic advisors, current international student leaders, and staff and faculty associated with International Programs and the Office of Admissions.

This group of eight is visiting a total of five universities and community colleges this week while in Oregon…and will get the chance to see a bit of Oregon, too, with it’s gorgeous greenery and blooms this time of year. Their visit is a ‘lead up’ to the annual NAFSA conference to be held in Minneapolis at the end of May.

Links to the Education USA and Fulbright Commission websites were added at 12:10pm on May 25, 2007.

    Hey. This is great. You should invite advisors from Pakistan too. I’ve worked with the USEFP here. It’s nice to know that you guys are getting educational advisors together. I was advised by Education USA in Pakistan (USEFP), and I was on a Fulbright program last summer. Went to Chicago and Washington D.C. It was really amazing. Education Advising with Education USA is great :)

    Now thinking of applying to OSU. For now, I’m thinking of taking this online course for some distance learning here:

    Tell me what you guys think! Good luck with organizing more of these visits :)

    That was a great move… and Maliha, that looks like a good school! You should give it a try.

  4. I am a firm believer in the value of internationalization. When I was in college my experaince working with students and staff from other nations really opened up my mind to working outside of the US. I now live in Panama and run a successful buisness here.

    Keep up the good word OSU and Education USA. I think these kind of exchange experiences are crucial to a college students education.
